The Mozilla Channel Messaging API allows two separate scripts running in different browser contexts to communicate directly as long as they're attached to the same document (e.g. two IFrames, two workers, or two documents via a SharedWorker). These scripts are able to pass messages back and forth across two-way channels with a port at each end.
The following is a list of how-to and tutorial content that matched your search term. ProgrammableWeb's how-to content comes from two sources; full-blown tutorials that we publish ourselves and other highly relevant tutorials that we find elsewhere on the Web. This list represents on combination of both tutorial types and if you go to ProgrammableWeb's API University, you'll not only be able to find more, they are organized based on your role (API providers or developers who consumes APIs). If you know of a tutorial that would be of interest to the ProgrammableWeb community, we'd like to know about it. Be sure to check our guidelines for making contributions to ProgrammableWeb.
